America’s research universities are essential to the innovation that is the foundation of U.S. competitiveness and long-term economic growth. Without university research — much of it funded by the U.S. government — companies would not have been able to develop many of the industrial products, processes, and services upon which the nation now prospers.
AAU strongly supports the innovation and competitiveness agendas that have been advanced in recent years by some of the nation’s top industrial, scientific, technological and political leaders. These agendas focus on enhancing government support for university research and strengthening the nation’s talent pool in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
